Meet your Peer Coaches

Sometimes, you just need to know others have been where you are. At SUNY Adirondack, first-year students are assigned peer coaches — other students who just last year lived through what you are now — to help show you around and figure out how resources at the college can help you. Peer coaches are successful, advanced SUNY ADK students who are here to help you feel more comfortable and connected during your first year at college. If you're not sure who to ask for help, you can always start by reaching out to a peer coach. They'll figure out what you need or where you need to go, and show you how to get there. They'll even go with you. College is a team sport — don't go it alone.
